Schleswig-Holstein has been holding out on the rest of the world, trying to keep a place Rellingen all to itself. However, with frequent bus and rail service from Hamburg you’ll be able to enjoy this little explored jewel very easily.
Rellingen is most known for its striking octagon shaped church. Its original was destroyed during the Thirty Years’ War (1618 -1648) and rebuilt in this Baroque style in 1754. The church itself is Rellingen’s landmark and takes so much pride of it, that it displays prominently on the town’s Coat of Arms.
Rellingen — Top Areas Of Interest
One thing that should be displayed on its Coat of Arms is a musical note, considering how important music is here. There are many church music concerts throughout the year; as well as the annual Schleswig-Holstein Musik Fest with upwards of 150 concerts going on throughout the festival. The MaiFestival is another musical treat with another 3 days of concerts.
Yamaha must realize how important music is here in Rellingen, where they have a musical instrument manufacturing plant.
You’ll most likely still be humming along while stretched out relaxing at Krupunder See. Sorry, you can’t swim in it any longer but, still a great place to sit and unwind by the water. It is a nature preserve, so enjoy the birds and other wildlife.
It is in the neighborhood of Egenbüttel that you’ll find some of Rellingen’s objects of interest. One is a stone memorial dedicated to lives lost in wars from the 19th and 20th centuries. A somber single Iron Cross memorial with names of local residents who lost their lives in the First World War.
Back to party, Rellingen looks forward to its other festivals, as well. Nothing says Fall more than apples, exactly why Rellingen has an awesome Apple Celebration that’s held on the last Saturday in September. There’s nothing better than the smell of an apple pie or other goodies made from this most delicious fruit.
More local goodies and fun can be had at Rellingen’s Summer Celebration. With, guess what, more music! And, it doesn’t get much better than that!
